Sustrans is the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. We connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute. Sustrans works in partnership, bringing people together to find the right solutions. We make the case for walking and cycling by using robust evidence and showing what can be done. We are grounded in communities and believe that grassroots support combined with political leadership drives real change, fast.

Sustrans would like to make a public commitment to improving diversity within the environment and sustainability sector, and among environment and sustainability professionals.

We will uphold this commitment by delivering our vision to become a charity for everyone. Our programme of work includes:

  • An end to end review of our recruitment processes to make them more inclusive
  • A review of policies and business processes to ensure they are fair and equitable
  • Raising up voices and providing a platform for colleagues to share their lived experiences and bringing in other voices.

To show progress on these commitments, we will provide an update to the Diverse Sustainability Initiative every six months.
